View Full Version : Yipee! I'm in Onederland!!!

I am very happy to announce that I've made it over the 200 pound mark, and I officially now weigh 199 pounds. I was practically crying when I saw it on the scale. And I've had that John Mayer song (Your Body is a (W)onederland) playing in my head all morning. Just want to say thank you to all you contributors to 3FC in helping me get here. Your stories, advice and good attitudes have been such an important part of getting me here.

Of course, this is not the end of the story - there's a lot more work to do. (Next stop - getting into the "overweight" BMI category). But, thanks to this wonderful community, I know I can do it. Now I better get off the couch and out for a run to make sure it happens!

That's awesome! I have set that as my goal. I'll bet seein the scale at less than something with a 2<or a 3> is incredible! I am in Chicao, too! Love it here!

Good Job Rachel. You must be estatic! I just got into onederland but I didn't have as far to go as you and I too was so excited. There's something about the 200 mark that makes you feel heavier. I don't's a number but it has some kind of power! ;) Keep up the good work!

I hope to join you there soon! Oh, and I liked your John Mayer reference! I'm a big fan -- I've seen him in concert five times!

Thanks everyone! Nice to see all the Chicago connections here. I know I'm biased, but I do believe it's the best place to live in the world, weather and all.

OMG!!! I am soooo very happy for you!!!!

Wow!!! This is great news. I can truly appreciate how hard you have worked to get to ONEderland. What a fantastic feeling. I saw the title on the main screen when I signed on and I was wondering which of the girls made it there, there are quite a few right on your tail. It's so nice that we can all share in this together. I also like the reference to the John Mayer song, and now I've got it in my head!! Congratulations again and enjoy the rest of your day and weekend knowing that you have just accomplished a really big feat. What a great thing you have just done for yourself. Enjoy!!!
